Winter Birding in South Carolina and Georgia
Any part of the Atlantic coast of the US can provide exciting birding in winter. The coastal plain of South
Carolina and Georgia is no exception. This area offers a chance to find birds more common farther north (Great Cormorant, Purple Sandpiper) as well as several species more common to the south (Black-bellied Whistling-Duck, Common Ground-Dove). The addition of resident birds only adds to the interesting list of target species possible on this trip: King Rail, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Brown-headed Nuthatch.
Other species we will be looking for include Red-throated Loon (sometimes dozens in one ocean view), Tundra Swan, Anhinga, Clapper Rail, Piping Plover, Seaside Sparrow…and up to twenty shorebird species, a dozen types of ducks and four or five warblers, including Pine and Orange-crowned Warblers.
